Introduction to the Immune System
A strong and adaptable immune system is considered by many to be the foundation of good health. The immune system is a complex network of cells and tissues which work together to defend the body against foreign pathogens. It exists in layers: the surface layer which is the first line of defense from the environment (consisting of the skin, the respiratory tract and the digestive tract), the non-specific layer which is the second line of defense should a pathogen enter the body (consisting of white blood cells and an inflammatory response) and the specific layer which is the last line of defense (consisting of T cells and antibodies). Working around the clock to differentiate “self ” from “non-self ” (i.e. your body’s cells from pathogenic organisms), the importance of the immune system goes largely unnoticed… until you catch a cold.
Organic Immune Boost
Organic Immune Boost is designed to promote a healthy and robust immune system. The formula provides a full-spectrum of natural and organic ingredients for enhanced wellness throughout the changing seasons:
- Vitamin C has a positive effect on several parts of the immune system. In particular, Vitamin C helps the body to produce more white blood cells, antibodies and interferon (the antibody that prevents the entry of viruses into cells). This formula contains 130% of the Recommended Daily Intake (RDI).
- E chinacea is one of the best herbs for the immune system and has extraordinary antibacterial, antiviral and antifungal properties. It is said that the Plains Indians used Echinacea for more medicinal purposes than any other plant.
- A blend of three mushroom species provides additional immune support. Valued as both food and medicine for thousands of years, these mushrooms are powerful tonics that support vitality and wellness. Practitioners of Chinese
medicine believe that mushrooms are unique in their ability to “tonify” or strengthen the three layers of the immune system.
- Lastly, all of our Irwin Organics products contain a proprietary blend of organic Papaya and Ginger – two herbal digestive aids that may enhance the benefits of the other ingredients contained in this formula.
